Designed Interventions……. specialists in tailored consultancies that result in sustainable change – for individuals, groups and organisations.




The future of well lead, efficiently managed, high quality patient care in health systems within Australia relies on true engagement of both the Executive administrators and senior clinical staff in each hospital and health service in defining common goals, developing strong effective leadership and in genuinely pursuing two-way communication.

In pursuit of such leadership and engagement, Designed Interventions Pty Ltd has been contracted on several occasions to partner with Victorian Hospitals to design and facilitate integrated leadership development programs, tailored to the specific needs of the medical leaders (senior clinicians) and the Executive within the hospital system.

We are currently facilitating the FIFTH such program and each previous program has been considered a great success by both the hospital executive and the groups of participants involved.

We believe the uniqueness of this program contributes greatly to its effectiveness and the particular aspects of this program.

Foundations of the intervention

This program is founded on a number of principles that support the effectiveness of the intervention for the individuals and for the organisation involved. Firstly Designed Interventions, through this unique program design, is working with the executive leaders of the health system to reflect upon, influence and lead the culture of leadership and hence the broader culture of the organisation. Each individual in the program is being encouraged and assisted to increase their understanding and their take up, of their leadership role on behalf of the organisation. Each program is uniquely designed with participants to ensure the greatest effectiveness and impact across the whole organisation. The constructs and language of role clarity, role authority, and personal authority, in alignment with organisational imperatives and culture, become shared, useful tools.
